Monday - 2/6/2012, 8:06pm EST
The President hasn't had that consolidation authority since the 1980s, and it's been even longer since the executive branch was reorganized.

John Powers, a principal with Deloitte Consulting, specializes in the company's mergers and acquisitions practice. JoAnn Boutelle is a former deputy chief financial officer with the Defense Department and is now a partner at Deloitte & Touche. Along with former Rep. Tom Davis (R-Va.), now the director of Deloitte Federal Government Services, Powers and Boutelle joined In Depth with Francis Rose for a discussion of the proposed federal reorganization as well as the role the private sector can play in those consolidation efforts.
